SCENES OF DESTRUCTION and dedicated firefighters juxtaposed one another during the Aug. 27 fire at 3099 Eliot Dr. in Hood River. West Side Fire Department volunteers were assisted by crews from Hood River and Odell to stop a blaze that burned through a garage, two vehicles and a modular home. No one was hurt and the fire was contained to one property. A teen, two dogs and a hamster made it to safety during the 2 p.m. inferno.
